It’s important to note that rocking chairs started in the American colonies. That’s made chairs that date back centuries to that area some of the most popular ones. The first rocking chairs included rockers that that stretched forward/backward. Several of the chairs were made by attached arced rockers to an old wooden chair.

However, the best rocking chairs that were built as actual rocking chairs are in more demand among collectors, as they were when they were originally built. It’s important to keep in mind that the styles of antique rocking chairs can vary a lot. That’s based on factors such as the particular era and location. For example, Danish rocking chairs are often very simple. These are important issues to keep in mind when searching for an antique rocking chair. It will help you to choose a chair with a particular look and feel you want.

2. Material

The material that the chair was made of can have many effects on the chair. In particular, different types of wood result in different looks and feels in terms of the rocking chair. This is important to keep in mind especially in terms of factors. For example, you should consider any themes and color schemes of a room where you’ll be placing the rocking chair. Due to the age of the antique chair you’ll likely be trying to create a more traditional look where you put the chair. However, it’s also possible to include antique rocking Charis in rooms that have a more contemporary flavor.

Make sure to do some research about the different types of woods that are used for making antique rocking chairs, such as pine and others. The reason is that it will have different effects on the appearance, condition, etc. of the chair.

3. Condition

The condition of an antique rocking chair is based on various factors. One is the upkeep that the chair has received over the years. If the chair is hundreds of years old, you shouldn’t expect it to be tip-top shape. On the other hand, if it’s been maintained well it can certainly last longer. Whenever possible, do some research about the past owners of an antique rocking chair. It will help you to learn how well the chair has been maintained over the years, and will thus help to give some insight about the true condition of the chair besides how it looks.

I love to listen to the Farmer to Farmer podcast, while sitting in my rocking chair.

Another key issue to consider in terms of an antique rocking chair’s condition is the material it’s made of. In particular, certain materials will be able to withstand damage better. For example, pine tends to be less effective in preventing scratches, scuffs, dents, etc. than other types of woods such as oak rocking chairs.

Even if a rocking chair has been built to be used outdoors, due to the intended use of the chair such chairs tend to show more signs of weathering and frequent use. On the other hand, chairs that were built for display purposes tend to show less wear and damage, which makes them a good option if you’re looking for a rocking chair with less damage.

4. Value

The value of a rocking chair is based on several factors. They include the era and location of the chair’s production. However, there are other factors including the chair’s craftsmanship, function, condition, and other factors. Chairs with damaged or broken parts will certainly be worth less than units that are in better condition.

However, an X factor of sorts is that any antique item such as a rocking chair is an investment. If you choose the right unit it can keep increasing in value after you purchase it, which is definitely a plus. That will give you the opportunity to make money on your purchase. Meanwhile, if you purchase an ordinary rocking chair it will likely decrease in value over time.
